When the world's most powerful telescope launches into space this year, scientists will learn whether Earth-sized planets in our 'solar neighborhood' have a key prerequisite for life—an atmosphere.

These planets orbit an M-dwarf, the smallest and most common type of star in the galaxy.

Scientists do not currently know how common it is for Earth-like planets around this type of star to have characteristics that would make them habitable.

How to Find a Living Planet

The more we see other planets, the more the question comes into focus: Maybe we're the weird one? Decades of observing Earth from space has informed our search for signs of habitability and life on exoplanets and even planets in our own solar system.

We're taking a closer look at what we've learned about Earth - our only example of a planet with life - to our search for life the universe.
